Everything about this hotel was wonderful: the staff, location, ambiance and room. The staff made sure we felt welcome. The room is generous and lovely, and the public areas comfortable and impressive. We will be sure this will be our #1 choice when in D.C.

When visiting Washington, DC, be sure to indulge in High Tea at the Willard's Peacock Alley. It is charming, delectable, and worth every penny. Be sure to make a reservation. Our daughter lives in D.C. and the Willard will be one of our favorite go-to places.

I took the members of my work team here for a holiday treat. I had wanted to be at the Hay Adams which has an amazing tea but it was only offered on Sundays over the holidays. The price of $50 plus dollars not including 18% gratuity was to be expected, but I was really surprised and embarrassed by the...

Wonderful stay at the Willard. Room was just right-plenty of room to spread out. Lots of towels (Yea!) and the toiletries are yummy! Our room was quiet and comfortable. Best location ever, quick walks to museums and our favorite restaurant. We will definitely be back next year.

This beautiful and historic hotel is located right in the middle of Washington. It is within easy walking distance of the Mall and is a few doors down from the White House! It is steeped in history. It is a stylish and up market hotel so I would expect the prices are sometimes high but for our stay in January...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of the nation's capital, two blocks from the White House, The Willard InterContinental Washington, D.C. offers 335 spacious and elegantly appointed guest rooms, 41 of which are suites, that exude a unique blend of contemporary luxury and historic charm. Many of The Willard's guest rooms feature views of Pennsylvania Avenue and historic landmarks like the Washington Monument as well as downtown Washington, D.C. The Willard has been the site of many prestigious meetings, conferences and social events for nearly 200 years. With 19 meeting rooms and over 22,000 sq. ft. of event space, The Willard features unique and elegant function rooms including several ballrooms from which to choose. Discover a relaxing counterpoint to the busy pace of Washington, D.C. as you savor the fare at Cafe du Parc, featuring delicious French bistro cuisine and exquisite house-made patisseries. Reserve a table on one of Washington's most popular terraces' or dine inside in a modern, sleek Parisian-style setting. Join us for a drink in the historic Round Robin Bar. Located just off the lobby of The Willard, the Round Robin Bar has been a lively meeting place for Washington's political and social elite since the days of Abraham Lincoln. Long celebrated as one of the best in D.C., this legendary bar was known as the nexus of "Rum Row" and the "E street Corridor" -- plying its trade to luminaries such as Mark Twain and Walt Whitman. Today, this fashionable downtown spot draws a smart, stylish cross section of DC movers and shakers. The Round Robin Bar is open seven days a week, Monday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and Sundays 12:00 p.m. to midnight. ... more   less
